Well-renowned American author of horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, crime, science-fiction, and fantasy novels, Stephen King, has touched the hearts of people across the globe through his pieces of writings.

  • The trust of the innocent is the liar’s most useful tool.
  • Get busy living, or get busy dying.
  • And in real life, endings aren’t always neat, whether they’re happy endings or whether they’re sad endings.
  • Remember, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.
  • Optimism is a perfectly legitimate response to failure.
  • Life isn’t a support system for art. It’s the other way around.
  • Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.

  • He supposed that even in hell, people got an occasional sip of water if only so they could appreciate the full horror of unrequited thirst when it set in again.
  • There are things of such darkness and horror—just, I suppose, as there are things of such great beauty—that they will not fit through the puny human doors of perception.
  • Frightened people live in their own special hell. You could say they make it themselves, but they can’t help it. It’s the way they’re built. They deserve sympathy and compassion.
